There are also shorter projects so if you're really pressed for time, you can simply make a few pretty crochet cupcakes or jam jar covers - perfect for adding a personal touch to your home or for giving as gifts to friends and relatives. With a comprehensive introduction to the techniques of this fulfilling craft, as well as step-by-step instructions throughout the projects, this book is your one-stop guide to crochet. All patterns have been thoroughly tested and give clear instructions and close-up detail shots make the book suitable even for a beginner.
